it seems to be a strange plant, i hear of some talented scapers on this site that struggle with it. it does seem strange, some can some cant. personally its grows like a weed in my set-ups.....thank goodness.Nano Jake said:The only problem i have is that it grows so quick!!
thanks, my three week pic was due last thursday on my journal in my sig but I havent got around to taking it yet. will try and get one up this weekend. I havent put as much HC in as you possibly as i got some given to me by dave spencer and one pot from TGM.Nano Jake said:60x30x36cm Opti-White 60L

Fluval 205 external
Hydor External heater
D&D Pressurised Co2
ASA Aqua soil amazonia
Tropica plant nutrition+ 3ml a day
Easycarbo 2ml a day for the first 4 weeks now 1ml a day.
I use 2x24 T5 for 8 hours daily.
50% water change every week.
Unfortunately I didnt take any pics at startup [silly me]. I cannot remember how many pots of HC I planted but it was about Â£50 worth from memory.
Do you have any pics of your tank to compare the growth at 3 weeks?
Thankyou.vauxhallmark said:Beautiful job on minimising equipment in the tank - it looks almost like a shot where people take all the kit out for the photo.
I think inline heaters are the only way to go with this low style of planting.
